My husband's grandfather was born in Wonszas, Poland, is that the same as Warsaw?

My husband's grandfather was born in 1874 in Wonszas, Poland/Russia/Prussia. Trying to find out whether this is another spelling of Warsaw?

    It has been a few days since I posted my previous message, but have not seen any feedback or acknowledgement since then. I could add more to this post but am wondering whether you’ve already found your answers or whether it isn’t important any more?

  • Hi Sylvia. I apologize for not responding sooner. I am a college student, and also have an elderly mother-in-law with Alzheimer’s Disease. Sadly, we just can’t manage her care at home anymore and had to move her into an assisted living facility. It’s been challenging trying to help her adjust. This week, she developed a blood clot in her lower leg and has to have a procedure done to protect her heart. Needless to say, I haven’t had much time to myself for much of anything. I really do appreciate the work you've done to help me. I should be able to get back to it in the next few days. I thank you for your patience as well. 


  • Hi Sylvia. I'm sorry, I thought I had replied to your question earlier today. Anyway, I have been up to my eyeballs with family issues and haven't had an opportunity to look closely at any of this. I do appreciate your efforts-and your patience-on my behalf and hope to have time soon to study what's been given. If you have more info, that would be great. This does appear to be my husband's great grandfather, but as I said, I am just now able to take a close look. Thank you so much.
